Does Groove work with iOS devices? arrow down

Yes. With iPads & iPhones that have USB-C ports built-in, just connect directly using the supplied USB-C cable and it will automatically be recognized and work. If the iPad or iPhone has a Lightning port, you need to use Apple’s Lighting to USB3 camera adapter with an external power supply.

Does Groove work with USB on-the-go devices? arrow down

No. Groove is a high-performance headphone amplifier and DAC designed to power the most demanding premium headphones. On-the-go devices simply do not provide enough power for high quality headphone drivers.
